If you're staying in a hotel for the annual meeting this week, spare a thought for the housekeeping staff--though you may never see them, they're likely to be the ones taking the most time and care to assure your comfort, yet they are least likely to be tipped by hotel guests. See Tammy La Gorce, "Tipping May Be the Norm, but Not for Hotel Housekeepers," The New York Times (October 30, 2017): https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/30/business/hotel-housekeeper-tipping.html

See the American Hotel and Lodging Association's Gratuity Guide for more suggested tips for all hotel staff.
